Top tips for a Croydon Home Buyers Survey


Croydon's centre has been redeveloped many times although there are remnants and examples of housing from many periods apparent. The High Street, for example, has Wrencote House, a late 17th century Grade II listed building, as well as various Victorian era buildings.

The north of Croydon is not dissimilar to many London boroughs in having a certain number of Victorian terraces and some larger houses, but with the chief property type being the semi-detached house, dating particularly from the interwar period and post war, with many more modern developments.

The south of Croydon is decidedly more leafy with less population density and areas like Sanderstead and Selsdon have some larger Edwardian, Victorian and even Georgian properties.

Many of the modern developments around Croydon offer shared ownership, such as Saffron Central Square, a high-rise modern purpose-built block, Lennard Road (in Lennard Road) and Birchfield in Coulsdon – this development has offered shared ownership houses rather than flats. 

Leon House, a redeveloped and repurposed 22-floor block in Central Croydon, opened October 2018 and by March 2019, there were 96 apartments left to sell out of an original 263. The apartments are 1 and 2 bedroom and Help to Buy is/was available for purchase.

Properties built in the vicinity of the River Wandle in Croydon, such as in Riverside Close, are subject to flood warnings and alerts from time to time.

If you are concerned that a property you are looking to buy is in a flood risk area, you should consider getting a flood risk report (click for more details).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, a large area of Croydon, including streets such as Fawcett Road and The Waldrons, is in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

The raised Radon area has a maximum radon potential of 1 – 3% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

If you are concerned that a property you are buying is in an area of raised Radon, please click to visit Public Health England's UK Radon Map. Click also to find out more about Radon, Radon property searches and much more.
Properties in some areas of Croydon may be affected by overhead power lines or mobile phone masts.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Girton Gardens revealed that there were overhead power lines or mobile phone masts located within 250m of the dwelling.

Overhead power lines and phone masts can be contentious and additionally may have a visual impact on the surrounding area.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in Croydon and the surrounding garden. The aim of the survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is to identify potential risks or defects that you may not know are there such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Level 2 HomeBuyer Report with a Valuation

A HomeBuyer Report, also known as a Home Buyers Survey, is generally suitable for:

  • Bungalows
  • Flats
  • Standard construction houses

The majority of Croydon's leasehold flats require only a RICS HomeBuyer Report but for any Victorian conversions, a Building Survey may well be required.
